Description: This project tested a general framework of compliance with a behavioral measure of social distancing. To test this model, participants completed elements common to all, and were then randomly assigned to take part in one of four studies, all of which were launched simultaneously. All studies include the social distancing measures, the set of survey items regarding beliefs about the context, and various demographics. Subsets of our other predictor variables were included in four distinct studies. The four subsets involved: (a) source beliefs and science literacy, (b) belief in conspiracy theories and the measure of news sources, (c) general interpersonal compassion and concern for others vulnerability to COVD-19, and (d) perceived vulnerability to disease and disgust sensitivity.
